MALT Announces the Conservation of 154 Acres

MALT is excited to announce the closing of a 154-acre Conservation Easement on the Elk Meadow Ranch at Mt. Evans! The property is located within the historic Evans Ranch in MALT’s Upper Bear Creek Priority Area. Vance Creek runs through a majority of this scenic property providing for excellent wildlife habitat and a healthy forest ecosystem. Appropriately named, the Elk Meadow Ranch is home to a large herd of elk as well as black bears, mountain lions, deer and a multitude of other wildlife. Elk Meadow Ranch is adjacent to protected lands including the Mount Evans State Wildlife Area and a number of private voluntary land agreements.

MALT Executive Director Jeanne Beaudry said, “To be a part of conserving the last remaining parcel at the base of Mt. Evans, one that is so critically important, has been an honor for Mountain Area Land Trust. This Conservation Easement ensures a legacy for Dave Nelson and his family.”
